Coming Soon: Style Explorer for Windows Phone 8

I've just submitted my fourth WP8 app to the Store.  It is called Style Explorer and is primarily for Windows Phone developers.  If you are a developer you are probably aware of the numerous built-in resources that comes bundled with Windows Phone.  Microsoft encourages use of these resources to produce a consistent look and feel and user experience on the Windows Phone platform.

Style Explorer is a reference tool which organises and displays these resources so you get a feel for what they look like on the target device.  This includes:

  • Supported Font Families
  • Font Sizes
  • Font Weights
  • Text Styles
  • Accent Colors
  • System Brushes
  • Control Brushes
  • Default standard control properties
  • Segoe UI Symbol Named Glyphs
  • A Visual Designer which allows you to modify the look and feel of standard controls and export the settings as C# or Xaml

Here are some screenshots:
